Since 2012, the DTC team has invested more than $1.5B in 145+ early-stage teams building technologies the world runs on. Nine of those companies have gone public and more than 65 have been acquired by companies including Amazon, Apple, Cisco, Dell, Intel, Palo Alto Networks, Microsoft, and VMWare.
Our approach to partnering with founders is inescapably influenced by the leadership of Michael Dell, who, as founder and CEO, has lived every stage of the entrepreneurial journey. Empathy for the founder experience is innate to us.
We're in It Together
Building for the enterprise is hard. The problems are complex; the stakes are high. We work hard to leverage every bit of experience we have to support the founders who work with us.
Our Network Is Your Network
When you know one of us, you know all of us. Not just the DTC team, but our deep bench of customers, enterprise-at-scale CEOs, advisors, and technology SMEs at Dell.
Expect Informed Perspectives
We do the homework necessary to stay current and to understand the business you’re in, the technology you’re building, and the customers who need it.
We'll Respect Your Story
Honoring the founder experience is paramount and drives our every intention. We’ll challenge your assumptions and push for excellence. But ultimately, this is your story.
And we’re just getting started.
